The Safety Domain Control Unit is capable to integrate complex active and passive safety functions.
SPEED XL, a safety domain control unit, opens up the possibility of powerful processing of sensor data from sources such as driver assistance systems for adaptive activation of safety systems. It is especially suitable for interconnecting complex active and passive safety components.
Amongst SDCU’s functions that benefit from an improved information base through networking is, for example, the situation-dependent deployment of airbags (multi-level airbag deployment). But also the activation of the wheel brakes after an accident (Post Crash Braking), an active pretensioner of the seat belts, and the automatic eCall belong to the possibilities that contribute towards Integrated Safety.
